Well first of all I wouldnt say that that is heavy towing. I dont know what cab/wheel configuration you have but I'll assume you at least have a crew cab, which means your truck probably weighs in the 8000lb area. So if you are saying that your total load (truck, camper, and boat) is 14k, then that means you really only have about 6k, shoot round up to 8k, of actual load which in all actuality is really a pretty light load. Our trucks are rated to tow 12.5k with just a ball hitch and over 16k with a fifth wheel hookup. Now of course with a camper you run into aerodynamics being a problem, nonetheless, the oem cooler should be able to handle those duties even on a stock tune. I have towed 10-11k with a triple axle trailer with my truck on a 100hp tune from VA to MI and only had oil temps reach 220F. Now I have installed a BPD setup and like it but havent been able to tow with it. I have to say that I am confident that it will be able to handle the extra heat load just fine.
